What are you most proud of? 1. That I was able to complete it! 2. That I was able to seamlessly combine tunisian, regular crochet and knitting in one shawl. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep an open mind. The pattern is very simple to pick up and I have had beginners test this project with ease. So do not be intimidated by the look of the shawl. Its quite simple. The body of the project only consists of two row pattern repeat. The border is extremely easy, with picot edging for dramatic effect. Blocking is essential.
